Indy Doula Associates was founded by Patti in 2014 (read more regarding that journey on our About page).
Patti is a mother, grandmother, and experienced doula who put her passion for new families into practice and certified with DONA International in 2009. Since then, she attended over 500 births in the Indianapolis area. Patti continually furthered her education by attending birth workshops that kept her up-to-date on current research. Some of these birth workshops have included breastfeeding, Spinning Babies, Calm Birth, Hypnobabies, “The Truth About Vaginal Birth After Cesarean,” with Jen Kamel of VBACFacts.com, “The Rhythm of Labor,” “Healing From Traumatic Birth,” and many more. Patti also mentored other women who were working towards their doula certification. She has two sons, Brian and Hunter, plus a bonus son, Alex, and an adorable grandson, Carson! She enjoys Starbucks, being outside by the pool, Starbucks, vacationing to see her sister in St. Croix, taking her grandson to the zoo, oh and Starbucks!
While Patti has moved on from the birth world, and from IDA, her work in starting our Agency set us up for success and our clients still benefit today. Thank you, Patti!
